  • Catalogue Essay

    Following the fall of the Soviet Union, Walter Lange re-established, in 1990, the brand once founded by his great-grandfather in Glashütte. The first collection, which was comprised of four watches, was initially presented in 1994 and immediately rose to the forefront of haute horology. One of these four watches was the timeless and now iconic Lange 1. First introduced 31 years ago, its unorthodox off-centre dial layout, its revolutionary design and its great technical quality made it an instant icon.

    The present iteration of the model is an extremely restricted (20 pieces in total - as engraved to the back) version dressed with the warm tones of honey gold. It is offered in excellent, close to "as-new" condition and complete of all its original accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.
